Newssss + kiriban + animals - PHOTOSHi pals,
my journals are rarer and rarer, heh?
At first, kiriban! I missed wonderful 977 777 (I am an idiot), so catch my 978 978 to win a feature! it is quite close!
Just send me a printscreen via note as a proof, please (as usual, no feature for porn or animal cruelty, thank you for understanding)
At second, let me thank you for a camera bag! I could buy it thanks to all your donations and it arrived safe, looking pretty awesome I especially appreciate a special space for bottle of water thank you once moooore!
But you know what is funny? Maybe you remember I said that I ordered two T-shirts from DA as a reward for losing weight. I ordered them and paid with points 11/1/2012 and I was nervous because I waited long time without getting them. After Christmas, I informed dA that the package did not arrive. Because both T-shirts were already out of stock, DA politely got my points back. But two days ago, more than 4 months after ordering it, my T-shir
Cute and amazing animal predators - PHOTOSHello pals!
So finally my illness got worse - it is still just a cold, but I had to stay in a bed and I was coughing like having tuberculosis
But since today, I finally feel a bit better. I will have a little walk tomorrow and if I survive () I hope to travel to take some new photos as it is snow here now again!
I also prepared some materials as I want to self-study English. I need to improve. I know I have work to do :/ I am especially bad with prepositions and prepositional phrases. And also with the use of "to" - I am never sure if I should say "I am considered a bad person" or "I am considered TO be a bad person".
One nice thing: I do not have nightmares about my thesis anymore, so I kicked myself to write a "thank you letter" to my supervisor. I like her, she is a very skilled young teacher and I was concerned about her opinion on me. I was afraid that she would consider myself to be totally stupid because of my inability to write a good thesis. Her reply was short but ni
News, features, BEARS - PHOTOSHi
Ohooo, I celebrated my graduation ceremony with like billions of calories!
It was the first time I had sushi (but I am a bit suspicious if the sushi was a proper version, because apart of tuna or salmon, there were also pieces which included pieces of... a duck ), then we had some cake, Latte and finally that pizza. Yummmmm.
I am awfully back to healthy regime now, nah, I would so have something unhealthy
The graduation ceremony was... a bit boring. I loved the previous ones better (lol, this one was my the third), because they were somehow nicely confused, the guests applauded although they were not supposed to do so... Funny but this time it was very official, the speech of our new dean was also somehow official (I sooo loved the previous dean! Fortunately he was present on Friday too, having a speech, but shorter). And guests seemed to be bored, like somebody forced them to sit there :/
But it was not bad, simply a nice way how to say "goodbye" to my alma mater.
ZOO Salzburg - PhotosHi
I am back from Alps
It was a very short trip, but I got to see ZOO Salzburg, visited fantastic spa, had a nice walk, travelled by cute little train, ate a deer and all was simply nice
But my camera and this ZOO are not friends :/ so I have only very few photos for you, I took mostly journal shots.
And their special GINGER (!!!!) wolves were sleeping again! I have never seen such inactive wolves in any ZOO
I also replied to almost all the notes!
I hope you do not hate me for not responding to all contest notes you sent me months ago - those who won were those who sent the first three notes, so there was justice anyway and the right answer was released too, so I would need to reply to all those messages just with "I am sorry that you did not win, I wish you good luck next time" thanks for understanding!
Kiriban and adorable baby polar bears - PHOTOSHello pals!
1) thank you, my Polish watchers for useful contacts!
2) today it is an important day for me, because today I had probably the lowest weight after some 12 years! unfortunately, this weekend will probably ruin it a bit (big family celebration with a loooooot of fatty unhealthy meals ), but still! I am on a great way and I am quite satisfied
3) ha! I announce the last kiriban... before I get 1M pageviews! sooo... catch my 988 888 pageviews and send me a printscreen as a proof via note to win a feature no feature for animal cruelty and porn, ok? I also suggest only people who have some art in their gallery should try it
4) female polar bear Cora finally left a maternity box, taking her two babies to outdoor enclosure so me and mum (I promised to go with her, she loves Cora, it is my mom's favorite animal) visited the ZOO. The babies were in the most distant part in the photographer-unfriendly enclosure and the weather was not good, so my pho
Worried + foxes - PHOTOSHi.
Not the best start of Christmas time - my grandfather had to go to hospital he had some trouble with Gallbladder and he probably made it worse with his bad diet (do not blame us, we did our best to provide him healthier food). So finally even our help was not enough, grandda got so weak that he had to be taken to hospital. Today, he underwent the surgery and they took his Gallbladder away. Fortunately, there were no complications and he felt good (but in pain) after it. Unfortunately, he will spend X-mas in hospital I will visit him for sure, I have already did twice. I am really sorry for him, but at the same time, grandfather feels much better under professional medical care and he is also provided with some proper feeding (he can not eat now, but you know how doctors feed people through blood). I am nervous, of course. My grandather is 83, so every such medical problem is not fun...
Me and my best friend Allerlei wanted to meet in Prague on Friday. I have not seen her for
Wonderful leopards - PHOTOSHi!
Huray, I am finally healthy. Finally it was not salmonellosis, but something very similar - so I took the same pills and now I am quite fine, which is good. Thanks for support
News + cute animals - PHOTOSHi!
I quit the job today.
I did not want to do it before finding another one, but I finally could not bear all that confused stuff and stress and low competence of the company. I was even supposed to help to spread something I considered to be evil for the world, so it was even more stressful.
Now I need to find a job as soon as possible. So I am poor again now XD
EDIT: people, you seem to be a bit confused - my job has never had anything to do with animals or photography! ZOO photography is just a hobby for me, I need to earn money to go to ZOOs. So my photography is not threatened by leaving the job, but it is threatened by having less money because of leaving the job if you know what I mean I just need to find another job
At least I finally have time to answer your notes and comments
Is anybody here? + news + ZOO animals - PHOTOS.Hi!
Ok, ok, ok, I am almost scared - what happaned? It seems that this site is totally empty for last week!
I wonder what caused this: Sandy? Or do Americans have some Halloween holiday so they are not online? Or... is there some secret and slow Zombie attack?
Of course dA decided to use this time to announce free shipping usually they do it before Christmas and I usually get pretty nice money from it. This time I got just few dolars, so I hope dA will repeat the action - just before X-mas as they did the last year. Because this site really seems to be empty now! as a response to a free shipping, I released Free calendar for 2013 - I think I have never had so few faves, views and downloads on it. What a pity, what a bad time
I know about Sandy, it was covered by Czech media a lot
Poor people, I hope everything will be fixed as soon as possible. I did not know it affected so many people
You also know I asked you to vote for Allerlei's photo - thank you
Love of wolves (mating season) - PHOTOSHello
First of all, kiriban (766 666) is VERY close!
At second, Brno's females, Alex and Clair, are in heat now. I went to the ZOO to take some photos - because of mating season, wolves were very excited and active. I had a great chance to watch their fantastic and natural behavior, which included gentle touches, aggresivity (not between alphas and beta, but younger wolves were somehow excited) and mating itself. It was just incredible to observe so intimate moments of the lives of wolves. Thanks to winter, I was totally alone with them - only me and wolves. I would like to share some shots I took - sorry for lower quality, the weather was cloudy and as you can imagine, wolves were moving a lot. Although I took some photos of mating itself, I do not want to post such shots. Not to offend some of my watchers (mating and also eating are absolutely natural for animals ) but to somehow respect privacy of the wolves
Thank you for every it would help me to share this
Apology + animals on snow - PHOTOSHi pals
I would like to apologize. I was so annoyed with the thieves (and I still am) and all similar ignorrant persons, that I almost stopped replying to notes and comments... Let's say that if you write "use of this photo is allowed only with written permission" and then you do not answer those, who DO ask, it is definitely not the most fair thing :/ so sorry, I promise I will answer as soon as possible. It really would not be fair if those, who are able to politely ask for permission, would suffer for the acts of the thieves. Once more, I am sorry that allowed all those rude thieves to annoy me that much that I stopped replying...
And... after several months of terrible overeating caused by diploma thesis, family problems stress, I had no courage to try to use a scale to check my weight. I just felt that my body is covered with fat again. But then I decided to move and checked it - I found out that after all those months of "piggy" overeating, I got only some 4 kilos back, which
News, busy and wonderful big cats - PHOTOSHi pals!
I am pretty tired but busy (it is 2AM here), so just a short text:
1) Kiriban has been caught, winner will be featured next time - congrats new kiriban is - aww - 1M! I am so excited!
2) I am still trying to lose weight and I still use that online program. It is pretty good. I eat 5000 Kj a day and today I went for the first evening walk of this year (until today, it was too cold, even snowing) - we were walking very fast, burning 2000 Kj in just one hour. Great! I also exercise, so I hope to lose even more weight! The bad thing is that time to time, I feel dizzy and like passing out. It has never happened to me, but when the dizzy feeling comes, I immediately take a piece of high-quality chocolate. It is a great first aid
3) I got more active in a group which is questioning the temporary dolphin show in Prague. It takes few hours a day, but it is very interesting, the issue is becoming very hot here. We have news, but... well, maybe in next journal? (too tired f
ZOO Prague flood news + baby wolves - 1st PHOTOS!Hello pals!
the kiriban has been caught - I ask the winner for patience, because I will the most likely give a feature in next days
Soooo, what is new about ZOO Prague, floods and "deliver Woxys to ZOO Prague" project?
The ZOO was indeed damaged a lot, but as the level of water gets lower and lower, they find out the damage might be less severe than they thought. At first they made estimation of 160 000 000 Czech crowns, now they think it might be "only" 100 000 000 Czech crowns. The water level was lower than in 2002 and also it was "steady", while in 2002, there was a strong stream comming through whole the ZOO, damaging it. Now the reconstruction might be "easier" than in 2002...
Project "Deliver Woxys"...
At first, let me thank you. You are AWESOME!!!!!
The "deliver Woxys to ZOO Prague" project got enough money to a) get me to the ZOO, b) let me buy some bottles of desinfection and a broom, c) let me tranfer the rest of the money to the "help ZOO Prague after flood" bank acc

one year membership to winner of eventahoy
i know what some of you may think here, "well, my skill level isn't going to win me anything here"
my friend, that is not the case in this event. ALL entries will be have the same amount of chance, the final winner is not based on how well the drawing or writing is done. the winner will be RANDOM. you are asked to do your best because you owe it to yourself for a good piece of work. The final piece will remain your own property, im just trying to get some activities going here. XD
you need to do one of the following to quality as an entry.
1. a drawing of a lamia in any media (traditional, digital, photo-manip, also welcome)
2. a short story involving a lamia. preferably no longer than 1 page.
there are a few versions of the lamia monster, what i am looking for is the one that is top half human, and lower half snake. now most of these are portrayed as female, but if you are up to it, feel free to make a male one.
also regarding the hair, you are free to make it snake hair or norma
NaruSakuHas it really been 2 months since my last journal? ^^'
As many of you probably saw, a lot of people are hurt over NaruSaku from the last chapter. All I have to say is that this feels too soon for any pairing to become canon. We still have a year and a half before the manga ends and every time Kishimoto brings more into a character, they die. Asuma and Kurenai, Jiraiya and Tsunade and then we also lost Neji when he was getting the spotlight. Does this mean Hinata will die? No. I am not Kishimoto. I don't know his plans. All I am saying is that this could end badly for Hinata. After all, she is right next to Naruto on the front lines. Obito wants Naruto to suffer and with that combined is making Hinata a big target at the moment. I still ship NaruSaku. It is still my current love but am I against NaruHina? No. I don't like the pairing but I am not opposed to Kishimoto doing what he wants. I loved NaruSaku when it wasn't canon and will continue.
I am not going to say NaruSaku will be cano
The reason why I 'call out artists'Well, I think I say enough about this crap already with my replies to people and in the original posts themselves but I want to get the final word out so people can read and interpret how they will. Thank this http://artist-confessions.tumblr.com/post/40773766635/submitted-by-anonymous-admin-note-background for the resurface and sorry for people who don't wish to read about this sort of thing anymore. If you don't please pass it by.
As much as I don't want to address this, I want to to let people know why I do these things. This is kind of like a "snitches-get-stitches" kind of post, isn't it? I don't really have much to say since I already said a load of it when I made these posts but to people who think I want to sick my watchers etc on people it's not true. And remember as ruthless as the internet to these kind of things, they are also VERY forgiving. The Kidchan scenerio for example resolved itself nicely when Kidchan made a formal apology and properly addressed the situation. I ha

Hiro Mashima's reply to my giftSome of you already noticed it but yeah yesterday I sent the gift to Hiro Mashima's twitter page, I finally had the courage to do such thing also because of all your support! I really appreciated it!
Yesterday when I was at work I asked my friend to translate a short message for him and just after few minutes later, Mashima sensei kindly replied to my Twit! I still can't believe it!! It's such an honor to receive a comment from a famous mangaka!! Words can't describe what I'm feeling right now!
